NEW ENGLAND POWER POOL                                                                    


The New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) was established in 1971 as a voluntary association of market participants from the six New England States.  The Participants Committee is the principal governing body of NEPOOL, which considers and acts on all matters affecting the New England region’s wholesale electric power arrangements, either directly or by delegation. The Participants Committee is made up of six energy Sectors in which every NEPOOL Participant, together with its Related Persons, is entitled to have a member and alternate.  The six Sectors are each represented by an Officer that is selected by the Sector on an annual basis. A Committee Chairperson is elected from among those Officers.  The Participants Committee meets monthly in a New England locale, typically in Boston or its environs, and has an annual Summer Meeting, typically at the end of June, at locations throughout the New England States.  

Apr 16   FERC dismisses Petition for Energy Efficiency M&V Declaratory Order (EL19-43).  The FERC dismissed 
             as premature the petition for declaratory order filed by Advanced Energy Economy and Sustainable FERC Project 
             related to potential future changes to the manner in which ISO-NE measures demand reduction values of energy 
             efficiency resources for purposes of participating in the Forward Capacity Market.  The FERC found that the harm 
             alleged in the Petition was speculative in light of ISO-NE’s clarification that it has not made any proposal, nor does 
             it currently have any plans, to change its M&V standards.  If parties believe that ISO-NE’s future actions violate 
             the Tariff or the FPA, they may file a complaint pursuant to FPA section 206 at that time.
